I bought this because my one-year-old drips juice and milk all over the carpet. I tried every powder or spray I could find to get the stains out.

When I am cleaning a room, there are often things that go in the bathroom, the bedroom, my son's room, the kitchen, etc. I carry a plastic bag for each room (and a bag for trash) when going around and cleaning. At the end I just take the bags and put them where they belong.
